Policy and Basic Approach
The Mitsui Chemicals Group believes that it can effectively help to resolve social challenges by harnessing its strengths and unique characteristics as a Group. With that in mind, we utilize our chemical technologies and products and roll out a host of social contribution activities that include efforts to develop the future generation and provide disaster relief. At the same time, we undertake various endeavors to encourage our employees to participate in social contribution activities of their own accord. In addition, and with the aim of ensuring that our sites are always open to the local community, we place the utmost importance on communication with members of the local community while working in harmony with all those around us.
The Mitsui Chemicals Group Social Activities Policy
The Mitsui Chemical Group will continually strive to:
- Harness and improve its chemical technologies to contribute to society as a whole
- Work in harmony with local communities and ensure that its sites are as open as possible
- Do its bit to nurture future generations, on whose shoulders the future rests
- Carry out activities aimed at protecting the environment
- Engage in active international exchange and cooperation
- Create a corporate environment in which individual employees can actively participate in social activities
System and Responsible Officers
With the responsible director in charge of the Corporate Communications Division, the Corporate Communications Division develops and implements annual social activity plans. In addition, each business site enacts voluntary and ongoing efforts while coordinating with the Corporate Communications Division.
The Corporate Communications Division conducts a survey of the results of social contribution activities of each of the Company’s business sites as well as domestic and overseas subsidiaries and affiliates once a year to confirm activity details.
Review and Challenges
The Mitsui Chemicals Group engages steadily in a wide range of activities in line with its Social Activities Policy and fiscal year targets. In addition to reconfirming the significance of activities based on such key criteria as the Social Activities Policy and business details, we will carefully examine the details of activities.
As one of our activities aimed at protecting the environment, as listed in our Social Activities Policy, we are currently working to address the issue of marine plastic wasteas we believe that it is relevant to us and also because it is drawing much social attention. Since fiscal 2018, we have been providing lectures to consider how we can engage with this issue to audiences both inside and outside the company, as well as holding intra-company workshops. We plan to run the Mitsui Chemicals Group Cleanup Caravan campaign across the group in fiscal 2019. This campaign is intended to gather information on the status of cleanup activities conducted by each business site to raise awareness among employees, helping them realize that their daily activities really can help to cut marine plastic waste.
